Thermoplastics are widely used to transport many different media including water, gases and chemicals; however, it can be challenging to convince new users that thermoplastics offer benefits over traditional metallic piping. Continuing to educate non-plastic users as to the safety that thermoplastics offer is our industry’s most basic challenge.

This educational webinar will cover:
- Advantages of thermoplastics
- Material options
- Joining techniques
